Early Sunday afternoon, storms blew across DFW. While they didn't last too long, it was just enough time to do some pretty severe damage around town. In fact, a crane collapsed on top of an apartment building. Sadly, the collapse killed one woman and injured at least six other people.

According to Yahoo News, the crane ripped through one side of the five-story Elan City Lights building. Authorities were called to the scene around 2PM. The pictures sent in to NBC 5 are just devastating. It looks like the majority of the damage hit the parking structure.

At least one person is dead and six more are injured after a crane collapsed into a residential building in downtown Dallas Sunday afternoon, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue officials. More information on • • • • • #cranecollapse #downtowndallas #dallas #dfw
